DENTON, Tex. — Peterbilt has donated a 378 dump truck to the City of New Orleans to help in the cleanup of Hurricane Katrina.
The city will be able to keep the truck for the cleanup efforts and beyond, Peterbilt officials announced.
"In addition to the contribution made to the Red Cross by our parent company PACCAR Inc, the Denton plant and its employees wanted to help in the relief efforts by giving the City of New Orleans a work-ready truck that they produced," says Dan Sobic, Peterbilt, general manager and PACCAR vice-president.
Peterbilt also donated 100 cases of bottled water (2,400 bottles in total) which will be delivered in the truck. PACCAR also chipped in US$1 million to the American Red Cross’ Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.
